This program focuses on innovative approaches to establishing optimal periodontal therapy in the
hygiene department and discusses regenerative therapies in everyday clinical practice. The program
provides practices tips and tools to optimizing periodontal therapy and explores the advances,
capabilities and benefits of periodontal regeneration. Emphasis is placed on implementing
effective treatment protocols and how biologic modification, particularly enamel
matrix derivatives are used to regenerate lost hard and soft tissue. Establishing effective
practice and patient communication to enhance case presentation and case acceptance of these
therapies is a highlight of the program. Crestal bone maintenance is a key component in the long
term success of a dental implant. The presentation will examine how factors such as implant design
and surface technology impact maintenance of crestal bone around a dental implant. Current trends
in restoration of implants will also be discussed.

• Establish evidence based periodontal treatment protocols
• Understand the biologic basis for bone and soft tissue response
• Understand the indications, method of use and regenerative potential of enamel matrix
derivative and other biologic modifiers
• Implement effective communication to enhance treatment acceptance
• Understand the influence of implant design and surface technology on crestal bone maintenance
